I am very pleased to announce the release of my new coloring book Recettes du jardin à cuisiner et à colorier, Editions Mango. With 96 pages of seasonal, veggie-centric recipes by Franco-Japonese author Laure Kié. I took care of the illustrations, but the color is up to you!
Adult coloring books have had quite the renaissance in France the past few years, becoming one of the bestselling genres. I brushed off the whole thing until I sat down with Recettes du jardin and my colored pencils. “I know how to draw. Why should I color?” said the arrogant illustrator. Sure enough, I spent the whole weekend storming through page after page. But I get it now! Coloring is a tactile break from gadgets. Each page is a rewarding exercise in concentration. It’s like creative camomile tea, a much-needed digital withdrawal before bedtime.
Note: the recipes are in French, but coloring has no language.
Order a copy here. Or preferably at the local bookstore.
